About The Motley Fool

The Motley Fool is dedicated to helping the world invest — better.

Founded in the US in 1993 by brothers Tom and David Gardner, The Motley Fool helps people attain financial freedom through our website, premium investing services and share dealing service.

In 1997, we launched the UK version of The Motley Fool and that’s the website you’re looking at right now. Our US website can be found at www.Fool.com, and we have expanded into other countries as well, with websites in AustraliaSingapore, Canada and Germany.

In all we do, we take a different approach.

  • We believe that the individual investor can beat the market.
  • We believe that anyone can do it, even if they don’t have a lot of time or money to devote to investing.
  • We believe in a long-term outlook, helping people build wealth over time.
  • We believe that the person best positioned to take care of your financial future is you.

Members will get at least one small cap share recommendation per month, and we also follow the fortunes of numerous other small caps that form what we call the Hidden Winners Universe. Unique to this service, we will also periodically highlight small cap shares to avoid.
